Perspectives on Radiation Safety, Nuclear Security and Protecting the Environment

In this talk, Dr. Ed Waller will briefly outline his transition from industry to academia, some of the research projects he worked on while in industry, how his time in industry affected his views on research, and the pros and cons on transiting from industry research into academic research. After setting the stage, he will delve into his current research, specifically in the cooperative areas of safety, security, and the environment. Finally, he will discuss specific research performed in diverse areas such as aerosol dispersion, dose visualization and mapping, emergency response tools, and low dose investigations on human and non-human biota utilizing electron paramagnetic responance (EPR) spectroscopy.
